Savage starts: Texans coach Bill O'Brien, right, reiterated on Tuesday that Tom Savage, left, will be the team's starting quarterback.
Foreman, the Texans' third-round pick, impressed in his second preseason game.
While emphasizing that Savage, not rookie Deshaun Watson, is the team's number one, O'Brien said that the 27-year-old has enjoyed a good camp.
Savage has performed well during the presason, completing 17-of-20 passes for 167 yards with a touchdown and zero interceptions. "He's got a lot of talent, but I think he's got a long way to go". The rookie running back recorded the longest rush (41 yards in Week 1 at Carolina) and longest reception (63 yards in Week 2 against New England).

Watson was 3-of-10 for 102 yards in his second preseason game, and was also credited with 10 yards on four carries and a score against New England. On Saturday's 63-yard gain, Foreman broke several tackles and nearly made it into the end zone. "Since we've gone to pads, put pads on, Foreman's stood out. He can do some things in the passing game, so hopefully that continues".
"My mom and my grandma came today", Foreman said. The team struggled in the red zone, too, getting into the end zone just 40.9 percent of the time, second worst in the league.
That's how you get the job done.
